Win a Copy of The Agony Chef with Women24 (Plus: Read an Excerpt from the Book)

The Agony ChefWomen24 and Pan Macmillan are giving away five copies of The Agony Chef: Recipes and Advice for Life’s Pickles and Predicaments by Kate Sidley. They have also shared an excerpt from the book in which the Agony Chef presents the perfect dinner party recipes for newly-single women.

To stand a chance of winning one of the five copies of the book answer the following question:

Think of 3 tricky social situations and come up with the perfect recipe name for them.

‘When things go awry, reach for the carbs,’ said Buddha. Or maybe someone else with a tummy. Whoever. The point remains: certain foods are very comforting. Break-ups, bereavements, work problems, family fall-outs – there are few crises that are not improved with the appropriate culinary self-medication.

I’m not saying it’s a cure; more of a palliative. But one should take comfort where one finds it, and better the doughnut than the gin. Or, in extreme cases, both.
